Music festivals: age distribution of visitors in Europe 2016

It appears that the older people get, the less willing they are to brave music festivals. Almost seventy percent of festival goers in 2016 were aged between 18 and 30 years of age. Those attending music festivals were mostly attracted to the rock genre, with dance and pop music coming in second and third for popularity.

Funding festivals

By 2020, the European festival market size is estimated to be worth 4.1 billion euros. In 2017, the average festival goer forked out almost 150 euros per festival, with most agreeing that prices for tickets were fair. When visiting festivals most visitors either stay in tents or in a hotel.

UK home of the major festival

The United Kingdom (UK) has more major music festivals than France and Germany combined. In 2016, there were approximately 31 million live music attendees in the UK, with festivals in the London region accounting for the largest number of attendees.
